March 1st of 2012. 9 months to the fullfilment of the Mayan Prophecy, for the launch of Abstergo's Eye satellite and for the delivery of the third and final chapter of Assassin's Creed following Desmond's destiny.
And to start the hype, Ubisoft has unveiled today via GameInformer the boxart AND setting of the new game.
The new game will follow another white-beaked-hooded ancestor on one of the most century-defining wars ever -- the American Revolution.
We have no more details at this time but expect more soon -- especially if the game has been in development for as long as they say, we shall have info promptly avaiable to build up hype. And maybe this time they will deliver what is promised -- a true assassin experience.
I must say, altough the setting is kinda know and taken, with Mel Gibson's The Patriot and similar stuff covering it, the image got me excited. I'm curious to see the AC take on this. Let's hope it joins the best of AC, ACII and ACB -- namely, atmosphere/wisdom, great story, and fun -- into one awesome action/storytelling packed game.
Aaand this is all for now, brothers and sisters. Stay tuned for more AC news and sound off on the comments below. Me and the staff want to know WHAT you all think of the short glimpse of ACIII we got today =]
Safety and peace, folks.
